Frequently Asked Questions
How is different?
There are many free apps and websites available today for learning English. Some sell a product but unfortunately leave the learner alone and feeling demotivated. Others are "free" but are often full of users who are not sincere about teaching language or who are not professionally qualified to teach English. EngWish, instead, was created for serious students and provides a specific self-study system that guides the student from start to finish while promising amazing results — fast!

How long does it take to complete?
The entire course book can be read and completed in approximately 30 days without professor involvement. With continuous assessment and examination completion, a routine of one task each day would mean that the complete beginner to advanced course — 120 course book lessons (A1-C1) and all 10 course exams — can be completed in approximately 6 months with fullprofessor support.

What is VIP Membership?
VIP Membership complements the study book and allows for students to receive continuous assessment for homework tasks within the book as well as for examinations at A full breakdown of VIP Membership features and costs is available at

What is "coursework"?
This word refers to the combination of homework and examinations that comprise the complete course. Within the book there are 120 lessons each containing individual homework. In addition, there are 11 examinations available online: an introduction exam and 2 further exams for each study level (A1, A2, etc.). All coursework can be found at

How does the professor correct my coursework?
After a student submits coursework online, the professor will correct all grammar, spelling, punctuation, and contextual errors present in the text. A grade ranging from A* (perfect) to F (unsatisfactory) is also provided. Each coursework submission is typically corrected by the professor within 48 hours (with the exception of weekends). On request the professor can also provide clear grammatical or contextual explanations for every change made to the student's English in order to assist learning.

What's the difference between homework and exams?
Homework is designed to assess and measure the comprehension of individual lessons within thestudy book. Exams, instead, are designed to assess general progress and are used to assess the student's English level at the time of taking the exam. By default, homework correction provides a grammar correction and a grade. Meanwhile, exam correction provides a grammar correction, a grade, and a grammar report explaining any errors present while also advising the student to restudy particular lessons within the study book.

When should I take course exams?
The initial introduction exam should be taken when first registering at EngWish. This is used to assess the student's English level and is used as a starting point to decide which lessons the student should study. Following this, a new exam should be take approximately every 15 days. There are 10 exams in total, 2 for each English level. As with homework completion, the student can choose exams in any order or at any time. Exams can be found at

Can I submit my coursework again?
Under most circumstances, the general answer is no. Resubmission of coursework is not encouraged as this can prevent and delay study progress. However, at the discretion of the professor, regrading and resbumission of coursework may be allowed on occasion.

I finished the course, now what?
On course completion, students are encouraged to reset their course progress and start the complete course again in order to maintain maximum fluency and optimal language retention. Even students with a 100% A* record may learn something new on the second run. Alternatively, students can also continue to practise speaking as a way of maintaining communication and grammar skills in English using the Teacher Chat service.

What does the certificate show?
A diploma certificate from EngWish shows that the named learner has studied English for an approximate number of hours and has been assessed professionally by a qualified, native English professor as demonstrating the English level (CEFR) shown on the certificate. A score ranging from A* to F is also displayed which refelects the combined grammatical accuracy that was shown in all exams by the learner.

Does everyone pass on the course?
With the EngWish methodology, there is no "pass" or "fail". Instead, there is "complete" and "incomplete". The EngWish system can be thought of as a journey, much like climbing a mountain, and, therefore, every student has obstacles to pass and overcome. The aim of studying at is to give the student the best chance possible of developing knowledge of and producing perfect English.
